Project portals www.wikipedia.org — live Template, Sandbox
www.wikipedia.org template is the raw, live HTML source code of a Wikimedia project portal. Changes made there are seen by millions of people within an hour – sooner to anyone who clears their browser's cache. Do not edit this code unless you know what you're doing, and do not edit it by hand – intelligent Scribunto modules are ready to assist you. You can experiment with the template in the sandbox. To change language names, romanizations, etc., edit Module:Project portal/wikis. Then get the attention of a Meta administrator who can deploy your changes: place an {{Edit Protected}} notice at Talk:www.wikipedia.org template or Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. Administrators: Always follow the instructions on the edit page of www.wikipedia.org template to a tee.

Updates to this portal are no longer managed via this page. Changes are now managed via gerrit.

say "the free encylopedia in [Chinese]" in top 10 languages instead of the article count[edit]

I think you should have a message like "the free encylopedia in [Chinese]" in each of the top 10 languages rather than the number of articles. Very few people are going to choose their encyclopedia by article count rather than language, while large numbers of people are likely to bounce if they aren't sure what they are looking at, in particular not realizing that these are different editions in different language.

Notification of update process change[edit]

As the Wikipedia.org portal is no longer updated via this template, I would like to add this notice to the page. Is that agreeable and does the notice provide correct information to seek out how to update the portal? CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 18:44, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I'm one of those updating this page because I rely on the updated code that the inteligent Scribunto modules gives to me to submit my patches to Gerrit. As such, I'd rather avoid inserting code that disrupts the main page. Thank you, —MarcoAurelio 11:36, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Marco, I don't want to break any code. Do you think posting a notice here on this talk page would be sufficient? CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 18:57, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi. I didn't wanted to mean that you wanted to break any code and I apologize if it sounded that way. I'm on the opinion that maybe putting that notice in the header of this page will be sufficient, since only administrators can edit the main page. It might be worth mentioning it on the /temp subpage though. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 19:08, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Marco for the feedback. I'll do as you suggest and see what happens. :) CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 16:50, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks to you. I'll however continue updating this page, as it serves me as base for the patches I submit to Gerrit :) Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 11:49, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
